Phases and phase transitions in pure and doped spin-Peierls system CuGeO_3 are considered on the basis of a Landau-theory. In particular we discuss the critical behaviour, the soliton width and the low temperature specific heat of the incommensurate phase. We show, that dilution leads always to the destruction of long range order in this phase, which is replaced by an algebraic decay of correlations if the disorder is weak.

We discuss the double spin asymmetries in charmonium hadroproduction with nonzero transverse momenta at fixed target energies, $\sqrt{s}\simeq40$ GeV, within the framework of the factorization approach. It is shown that the color octet contribution is dominant in the asymmetries. The size of the asymmetries and the projected statistical errors in a future option of HERA with longitudinally polarized protons scattering off a polarized target (HERA-$\vec N$) should allow to distinguish between...

The mechanism of delocalization of two-dimensional Dirac fermions with random mass is investigated, using a superfield representation. Although localization effects are very strong, one fermion component can delocalize due to the spontaneous breaking of a special supersymmetry of the model. The delocalized fermion has a non-singular density of states and is decribed by a diffusion propagator. Supersymmetry is restored if the mean of the random mass is sufficiently large. This is accompanied by...

The large scale structure and physics of molecular gas in the Galactic center region is discussed based on the analysis of a 9' resolution survey of the Galactic center region in the J=1->0 line of C^18O. Emphasis is placed on the comparison with ^12CO(1--0) data. The line shapes of C^18O(1--0) and ^12CO(1--0) differ significantly. The ratio of the intensities of the two isotopomers in the Galactic center region is generally higher than the value of ~15 expected from the ``Standard...

The hypothesis that the Universe underwent a period of exponential expansion at very early times has become the most popular theory of the early Universe. Not only does it solve some of the problems of standard big bang cosmology, but it also provides a causal theory for the origin of primordial density fluctuations which may explain the observed density inhomogeneities and cosmic microwave fluctuations in the Universe. In these lectures, a review of the basic principles of inflationary...

Let X be a hyperkaehler manifold. Trianalytic subvarieties of X are subvarieties which are complex analytic with respect to all complex structures induced by the hyperkaehler structure. Given a K3 surface M, the Hilbert scheme classifying zero-dimensional subschemes of M admits a hyperkaehler structure. We show that for M generic, there are no trianalytic subvarieties of the Hilbert scheme. This implies that a generic deformation of the Hilbert scheme of K3 has no complex subvarieties.

We consider the problem of whether it is possible to improve the Novikov inequalities for closed 1-forms, or any other inequalities of a similar nature, if we assume, additionally, that the given 1-form is harmonic with respect to some Riemannian metric. We show that, under suitable assumptions, it is impossible. We use, in an essential way, a theorem of E.Calabi characterizing 1-forms which are harmonic with respect to some metric. We also study some interesting examples illustrating our...

We studied the thermal conductivity of a Bi_2Sr_2CaCu_2O_8 single crystal as a function of a magnetic field ramped up and down and then reversed. As recently discovered by Krishana et al., we observed a field-independent thermal conductivity above a threshold field. However, our measurements show that the magnitude of background thermal conductivity depends on the field profile in the sample. This is incompatible with the interpretation put forward by Krishana and co-workers.

We have performed a Discrete Fourier Transform on 136 CCD B, V and R frames of the Z Cam-type dwarf nova V1101 Aql. Our analysis indicates as possible orbital period P_orb =3.46 hours, though we cannot exclude the alias at 4.00 hours. We estimate the distance to the system to be about 300 pc. We possibly discovered a bright bow-shaped nebulosity around the object.

A similar allegation has been made concerning our proof of the gauge independence of the sum of the ghost number and Lagrange multiplier anomalies in non-conformal gauges. In this short note we refute their criticism by explaining the simple logic of our proofs and emphasizing the...

We present a low-energy effective field theory describing the universality class of the Pfaffian quantum Hall state. To arrive at this theory, we observe that the edge theory of the Pfaffian state of bosons at $\nu=1$ is an $SU(2)_2$ Kac-Moody algebra. It follows that the corresponding bulk effective field theory is an SU(2) Chern-Simons theory with coupling constant $k=2$. The effective field theories for other Pfaffian states, such as the fermionic one at $\nu=1/2$ are obtained by a...

We then discuss how the topology of the two-brane determines...

In a hybrid thermal-nonthermal plasma, we find that the dominant emission and absorption mechanisms are synchrotron by nonthermal electrons and bremsstrahlung by thermal electrons. These two processes significantly change the spectrum from inverse Compton scatterings at low energies. We also find that Coulomb collisions are effective in cooling down the lower energy electrons but do not significantly alter the emission pattern. Compton cooling is more effective in changing emission and...

The mass flux due to the cooling flow increases with time, as the Compton cooled region...

A number of observations strongly suggest that the baryon fraction is not a universal constant. One obvious interpretation is that there is some distribution of Fb, and the different observations sample different portions of the distribution. However, the small intrinsic scatter in the Tully-Fisher relation requires that the baryon fraction be very nearly universal. It is not easy to resolve this paradox in the framework of the standard picture.

However it improves on the MSSM since it explains the magnitude of its $\mu$ term and gives a prediction for $\tan \beta \simeq m_t/m_b$. It also...

An infinite-$U$ term is introduced into the Holstein-Primakoff-transformed magnon hamiltonian of quantum Heisenberg magnetic models of spin $s$. This term removes the unphysical spin wave states on every site and truncates automatically the expansion in powers of the magnon occupation operator. The resultant strong-coupling magnon hamiltonians are accurately equivalent to the original spin hamiltonians. The on-site $U$ levels and their implications are studied. Within a simple decoupling...

Three-body binary heating dominates and the postcollapse...

We study two quantum dots in the limit of strong dot-lead coupling and weak dot-dot tunneling. The model maps on Ising-coupled Kondo impurities. We argue that a new quantum critical fixed point exists at an intermediate value of the mutual capacitance, supporting non-Fermi liquid behaviour. We construct the total conductance across the double dot structure. It exhibits a strongly peaked behaviour as a function of the mutual capacitance, gate voltage, and temperature.

Two conditional averages for the increment Delta(x,x+r) = T(x)-T(x+r) of the scalar field are estimated for DNS data: H(Delta)= and G(Delta)= . The probability density function P(Delta) for Delta(x,x+r) is also calculated. If Delta, P(Delta), H(Delta), and G(Delta) are expressed as theta, P(theta), h(theta), and g(theta) in a dimensionless form, the data analysis has revealed interesting simple relationships between them. These relations may be helpful to construct a turbulence model.

We show that every $\mu$-constant family of isolated hypersurface singularities of type f(x) + tg(x), where t is a parameter, is topologically trivial. In the proof we construct explicitely a vector field trivializing the family. The proof uses only the curve selection lemma and hence, for an appropriately translated statement, also works over the reals. Some applications to the study of singularities at infinity of complex polynomials are given.

The s-wave meson-nucleon interaction in the $S = -1$ sector is studied by means of coupled-channel Lippmann Schwinger equations, using the lowest order chiral Lagrangian and a cut off to regularize the loop integrals. The method reproduces succesfully the $\Lambda (1405)$ resonance and the $K^- p \to K^- p, \bar{K}^0 n, \pi^0 \Lambda, \pi^0 \Sigma, \pi^+ \Sigma^-, \pi^- \Sigma^+$ cross sections at low energies. The inclusion of the $\eta \Lambda, \eta \Sigma^0$ channels in the coupled system is...

We include two loop, relativistic one loop and second order relativistic tree level corrections, plus leading nonperturbative contributions, to obtain a calculation of the lower states in the heavy quarkonium spectrum correct up to, and including, $O(\alpha_s^4)$ and leading $\Lambda^4/m^4$ terms. This allows us, in particular, to obtain a model independent determination of the pole masses of the $b, c$ quarks, $$m_b=5 015^{+110}_{-70} mev; m_c=1 884^{+222}_{-133} mev$$ to which correspond the...

Although adequate models of human language for syntactic analysis and semantic interpretation are of at least context-free complexity, for applications such as speech processing in which speed is important finite-state models are often preferred. These requirements may be reconciled by using the more complex grammar to automatically derive a finite-state approximation which can then be used as a filter to guide speech recognition or to reject many hypotheses at an early stage of processing. A...

Transitions between ``glassy'' local minima of a model free-energy functional for a dense hard-sphere system are studied numerically using a ``microcanonical'' Monte Carlo method that enables us to obtain the transition probability as a function of the free energy and the Monte Carlo ``time''. The growth of the height of the effective free energy barrier with density is found to be consistent with a Vogel-Fulcher law. The dependence of the transition probability on time indicates that this...

The EGRET experiment aboard the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory (CGRO) has observed at energies above 100 MeV strong gamma-ray flares with short-term time variability from the gamma-ray blazars 3C 279 and PKS 1622-297. During these flaring periods both blazars have been detected by the COMPTEL experiment aboard CGRO at photon energies of about 10 MeV, revealing simultaneous gamma-ray activity down to these energies. For both cases the derived fluxes exceed those measured in previous observations,...

A simple interpretation of the more than dozen microlensing events seen in the direction of the LMC is a halo population of MACHOs which accounts for about half of the mass of the Galaxy. Such an interpretation is not without its problems, and we show that current microlensing data can, with some advantage, be explained by dark components of the disk and spheroid, whose total mass is only about 10% of the mass of the Galaxy.

We propose a method to remove the mass sheet degeneracy that arises when the mass of galaxy clusters is inferred from gravitational shear. The method utilizes high-redshift standard candles that undergo weak lensing. Natural candidates for such standard candles are type Ia supernovae (SN Ia). When corrected with the light-curve shape (LCS), the peak magnitude of SN Ia provides a standard candle with an uncertainty in apparent magnitude of $\Delta m\simeq 0.1-0.2$. Gravitational magnification of...

The white dwarfs are promising laboratories for the study of cosmochronology and stellar evolution. Through observations of the pulsating white dwarfs, we can measure their internal structures and compositions, critical to understanding post main sequence evolution, along with their cooling rates, allowing us to calibrate their ages directly. The most important set of white dwarf variables to measure are the oldest of the pulsators, the cool DAVs, which have not previously been explored through...

We present the analysis of the phase transition for the two Higgs electroweak model. We have found that for a wide range of parameters the universe first tunnels to a new intermediate phase. This feature not only is very important by itself, but also provides the essential requirements for producing baryon asymmetry with only small explicit CP-violating terms in the two Higgs tree Lagrangian.

We compute some Gromov-Witten invariants of the moduli space of odd degree rank two stable vector bundles over a Riemann surface of any genus. Next we find the first correction term for the quantum product of this moduli space and hence get the two leading terms of the relations satisfied by the natural generators of its quantum cohomology. Finally, we use this information to get a full description of the quantum cohomology of the moduli space when the genus of the Riemann surface is 3.
